Roddick Really Can’t Stand France


US Tennis is in dire need of a big time player. On Monday, Andy Roddick continued to prove that he wants no part of it.

The power-serving 23 year old quit his match at the French Open with Alberto Martin due to a sore ankle, marking the second time in the last three Grand Slam events that he has been ousted in the first round .

Roddick was supposed to be the next Sampras or Agassi, but the only thing he’s done in the last two years is lose the Wimbledon final to Roger Federer. Other that that, he really hasn’t left his mark on tennis at all. It’s been all downhill since he showed that umpire that he made the wrong call in a match last May.

When you really think about it, though, it’s probably a good thing that he hasn’t been a little better. He could be at his best and he’d still only be fighting to be the third best player in the world behind Federer and Rafael Nadal. At least by sucking early on in these big tournaments, it kills the chance of Americans getting their hopes up come the semifinals.
